I asked myself initially how it would be possible for a person, specifically Ruth, to write three books based on every day happenings and to hold the attention of the reader.
She did and she did it superbly.
So many of the wonderful and unexpected experiences we have enjoyed in the four years we have lived here, and are continuing to enjoy, are so similar. Nothing sentimental about these books as some critics imply, they are based on fact and are real. Just wish that there was a 4th book in the offing. For those who genuinely want to feel happy and settled in La Belle France, these books provide the 'how to'.
I would recommend the trilogy. Happy reading.
All the characters from book one are back, older and wiser, and the family are now entwined in their local community. Ruth writes about weddings, new arrivals and talks of great friendships as well as changes they have seen in the farming community, especially the way the harvests are now dealt with by the new generation. Food, family and community are still an important part of this book as they are in rural French life. Ruth's writing style makes a very readable book and it was lovely to follow their story and feel included in their French adventure as well as learning so much about rural French life. This book will take you to the heart of rural France.
